We had more rain on Sunday, though not hard enough to create puddles in Turn 1. I ran two sessions back to back in it with DSC off - what a blast! The guy in the red GTR said he had a lot of fun watching me skipping through 1. Of course he dropped me like a stone immediately after.

My next TWS event is with TDE in October (CW again). On the waiting list for the Yellow group though.
Wish I would have come out for that 2nd day...didn't want to push my luck with my wife.

Generally, I'm a lot more confident in the turns with my 330. Just have to worry about the engine blowing up again from my tune.

The biggest difference are the brakes. I know I can beat the brakes on my 330 up and they'll stop. So I generally brake later for every turn in my 330. For sat, I ran with the OEM pads in the M3...while they worked, the brakes weren't exactly confidence inspiring. I have more issues with the rear end getting light under hard braking in the M3 since the brakes are so damned grabby. So I tried not to brake so hard into T15 to keep the rear planted and then this happened...

Yeah, didn't use all of the track!

Nice seeing you again! Yeah, camber plates save tires.
